Ronan’s Track of the Week (04 September 2017)

My Track of the Week this week is ‘Mourning Sound’, the second single release from Grizzly Bear’s brand new album ‘Painted Ruins’. From Brooklyn, New York, this is the band’s 5th album, the first in 5 years, and their first release on the RCA label. I’ve been a fan of this band for a while, but was surprised to note that its been that long since the previous album, ‘Shields’. Where does time go… During the hiatus the band members explored other pursuits outside of music, and clearly this space seems to have allowed the band to grow.  Reviews of the album have been good. The band are about to go on tour, and the first date happens to be at Vicar Street, Dublin on October 5th
